dc.description.abstract'Adult learning makes a difference - to the economy of course, to health, well-being, confidence and to our ability to help our children. Alan Tuckett - 4 December 2006 Alan has steadfastly believed that the inherent power of adult learning has been to change adults’ self-perceptions and subsequently their worlds through learning what they needed relevant to their particular interests and issues. Intergenerational family literacy epitomises relevant adult learning. Family literacy programmes engage adults in their role as parents, providing learning opportunities for them to enhance their literacy and, also their parenting skills, particularly in relation to their children’s emerging literacy skills. The programmes recognise adults as learners in their own right, but also as powerful influences on those around them in their homes and communities.en_NZ
